    The other night while on the Cape with family, we got to telling travel stories. I've collected a fair number of travel stories over the years - including my recent experience being towed down a busy sidewalk in downtown Seattle. But this is one I had almost forgotten. A few years ago I was traveling to a customer site in Minnesota. My flight arrived late and I dragged myself to the rental car agency hoping to get a car as quickly as possible. But due to the late hour, there was a limited availability of cars, and so the agency decided to upgrade me to a luxury car. I forget the exact model,…
  • Do we really only use 10% of our brain?

    Science + Technology – Articles – The Conversation
    Amy Reichelt, Research Fellow at UNSW Australia
    31 Jul 2014 | 11:21 pm
    As the new film Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman is set to be released in the cinemas this week, I feel I should attempt to dispel the unfounded premise of the film – that we only use 10% of our brains. Let me state that there is no scientific evidence that supports this statement, it is simply a myth. The concept behind the film is that through the administration of a new cognitive enhancing drug, our female lead character, Lucy, becomes able to harness powerful mental capabilities and enhanced physical abilities. These include telekinesis, mental time travel and being…

  • How Favoriting a Tweet Has Replaced Retweeting as the Most Powerful Marketing Tool on Twitter

    Mobile and Social Media
    25 Jun 2014 | 3:26 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Ok, I agree. Even I rolled my eyes after reading my own title. Sounds like another silly Twitter post trying to tell me that something as simple and trivial as a Twitter favorite is really a secret marketing tool. Sounds crazy, I know. I hope you change your mind after hearing me out. Allow me to begin my opening statements with a question. What, in your opinion, is the difference between sales and marketing? After all, both sales and marketing have the same ultimate goal, to encourage you to buy/use/adopt a product/concept/service, right? I mean if marketing does…

Normally, such events involve driving new cars.

    They weren’t the best thing he ever did, or the one which we’ll cherish the most. But with the sad news of the passing of James Garner, it’s worth pausing to remember the commercials he did in the late 1970s and early 1980s for Polaroid. And–this being Technologizer–it’s how we’ll memorialize him here. When it came to celebrity spokespeople, Polaroid wasn’t stingy: Laurence Olivier did the first ad for the SX-70 camera, and Danny Kaye touted the ill-fated Polavision instant movie system. Hiring James Garner was a similarly classy move, but the…

So in a way, it’s appropriate that the proprietary software which the studio used to animate it, Emo, had a lot of history behind it. Emo’s origins go back to the 1980s, an era in which computer graphics were very different than they are today, and DreamWorks didn’t even exist. It was created by Pacific Data Images, the…

As a heavy technology user going back to the early 1980’s, my own computing journey took me through various PC operating systems, applications and dozens of hardware devices and platforms that delivered a lot of functionality but, in most cases, were proprietary to each platform with data localized and hard to keep straight. I had some files on one system, other files on another system, etc. My biggest problem in…
  • Smartphones: Life’s Remote Control

    Bob O'Donnell
    29 Jul 2014 | 1:00 am
    The growing use of smartphones in more and more activities has led me to realize that, in essence, they’ve become the primary tool through which we run our lives: a personal remote control. Like a remote control, they’re (generally) convenient to use, always nearby, and offer instant gratification—or at least, instant access to choice. Smartphones are, of course, pocketable computers, but they’re capability is extending into so much more. They’re pocket maps, communications consoles, portable entertainment centers, infinite reference guides, wireless televisions, miniature game…

I literally made myself a list of individuals that I would one day, somehow, hope to have the privilege to interview. Some of them were a little out there. You know, people like the actress Alyssa Milano (remember Who’s the Boss? Good times.), Om Malik, the father of tech journalism, and even Steve Wozniak who founded this small company called Apple with his buddy Steve Jobs in their garage. I set myself some pretty high goals and so far, so good. Alyssa Milano One of the people…

I mean, we all know that prior to every big Apple launch of any kind, the rumor mill goes into high gear. How often are those rumors accurate? Not very often… But then there are some sources that you just know are reliable. Marques Brownlee is one such source. And this video of the iPhone 6 display is obviously legit so can we just put that behind us and discuss the topic at hand? Great. According to many sources, the iPhone will introduce the first display on a mobile phone made out of…

    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen, I have no intention of starting an iOS vs Android debate here so if that is why you opened this article, allow me to introduce you to the little X in the corner… I use an iPhone 5S as my daily phone and until recently, there was no way I was going to replace that with an Android device. Yes, I am fully aware that some of the newer Android flagship devices are more impressive than the iPhone, in both personality and looks, but for me, despite many MANY attempts, I stuck with iPhone. I have played with the Nexus 5. I have even played with the HTC M8.

Sounds like another silly Twitter post trying to tell me that something as simple and trivial as a Twitter favorite is really a secret marketing tool. Sounds crazy, I know. I hope you change your mind after hearing me out. Allow me to begin my opening statements with a question. What, in your opinion, is the difference between sales and marketing? After all, both sales and marketing have the same ultimate goal, to encourage you to buy/use/adopt a product/concept/service, right? I mean if marketing does…
  • 5 Marketing Gems I have Learned from Meeting Israeli Startups Every Day for Years

As my role of CMO at Zula, I am fortunate to work for a company that gets it. The company understands what too many companies still do not, that push marketing, self promotion, and spammy aggressive tactics simply do not work. The way to market a brand today is to provide value, whether that value is in the form of content, thought leadership, or just some help opening the right doors. I know, I…

  • UK Woman Denied Passport Because Her Name Might Infringe On Disney's Copyright

    With all the talk of terrorism keeping government officials firmly focused on travel documents (and electronics), it really comes as no surprise that they're on top of any passport anomalies. Like a traveler sporting one more "Skywalker" in their name than the other 99.9999% of the population.

  • French Company That Sells Exploits To The NSA Sat On An Internet Explorer Vulnerability For Three Years

    Tim Cushing

    Thanks to Snowden's leaks and a host of other information proceeding those, it's become clear that intelligence agencies -- despite their constant and loud "worrying" about cyberattacks -- are more than happy to make computers and the Internet itself less safe by purchasing, discovering and hoarding vulnerabilities. These are exploited to their fullest before being reported to the entities that can patch the holes. In the meantime, the NSA and others make use of security holes and vulnerabilities, leaving millions of members of the public exposed. It may just be arrogance. Maybe these…

    It's funny how strong-arming governments, theoretically able to bypass the red-tape that makes republics and democracies so slow-moving, just can't produce that kind of nimble posture when walking back their attempts to thought-control the internet. Time and again, we find examples of governments taking Orwellian measures against their own people on internet sites and social media networks, finding them to be far less useful than they'd thought, and then merely inching away from those attempts rather than outright reversing them. Ukraine recently served as an example of this, when they…
  • Appeals Court Smacks Down Team Prenda... Again

    Back in April it seemed fairly clear that the 7th Circuit Appeals Court panel set up to hear the Prenda appeal of the Lightspeed v. Anthony Smith case was not impressed by Team Prenda. I mean, when a judge directly states "there's a lot of shell games going on here" and also points out that it's "shocking" that the lawyer representing Prenda has no idea about the relationship between Prenda, Alpha Law and Steele Hansmeier (a central issue in the case), you expect that the eventual ruling is going to not go well for Team Prenda, but you never really know until the ruling comes out. It has come…

Hasbro's Angry Bird telepods were a big attraction last weekend at San Diego's Comic-Con, an annual gathering of 130,000 comic and entertainment enthusiasts, with fans lining up to preview new Transformers-themed bird figurines containing miniscule codes that can be read by tablets. The Angry Birds Transformers telepods, featuring "Autobirds" and…
  • Why the PC just won't die

    1 Aug 2014 | 6:26 am
    The PC is not dead, at least not yet, despite the rising popularity of tablets, “phablets” and smartphones - large and small. According to a July report from Gartner, the personal computing market will experience a “relative revival” this year.
  • Hackers can seize control of your phone using software preinstalled by your carrier

    1 Aug 2014 | 6:20 am
    With fears over hacking and NSA spying still mounting, the last thing we needed was yet another report of a serious vulnerability that leaves millions of people at risk — but that’s exactly what we got recently when news broke of a huge security vulnerability that impacts millions upon millions of Android phones, BlackBerry handsets and even some iPhones. Security researchers Mathew Solnik and Marc Blanchou with Accuvant Labs recently told Wired about a massive security hole that they’re about to expose. During the upcoming Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas, Nevada next…

  • Four Note-Taking Apps For The Tech-Forward College Student

    Jordan Crook
    1 Aug 2014 | 6:40 am
     As we head into the depths of August (the month where time stands still), there is one interesting thing that starts to happen. Kids head back to school. That said, we decided to use some new data from CampusBooks to look at how college students are approaching their schoolwork. Perhaps the most interesting finding was that 91 percent of college students prefer to take notes by hand. Almost all… Read More

    1 Aug 2014 | 5:51 am
     What would it take to get people actually buying smartwatches in droves? Could FASHION be the answer? A new odd trio aims to find out, with HP teaming up with fashion flash sales site Gilt and designer Michael Bastian (via Fashionista) to create a smartwatch that looks smart, too, if you’ll permit me to use some slightly archaic language for the sake of a pun. The tech behind the new… Read More

     OMG Lasers! A group of MIT students have built a scanning system that allows 3D printers to restart prints after a failure. Why is this important? Because there is nothing more frustrating than running a long print job only to have it fail in the last few minutes. The students, Claudio V. Di Leo, Louise E. van den Heuvel, and Sumant S.

  • E-phone Concept Believes In The Beauty Of E-ink Displays

    Tyler Lee
    1 Aug 2014 | 3:52 am
    If there is one particular feature that smartphone OEMs love to boast about it would be the displays on their phone. For Samsung, it is the use of their Super AMOLED technology that gives off the vibrant colors found on most high-end Galaxy Android handsets, while Sony loves to boast about their Bravia technology, and Apple with their Retina displays. This is why it doesn’t really make sense for a smartphone to use e-ink as its primary display. While there are color e-inks, safe to say that these displays are meant more for reading than actual viewing of websites, movies, videos, games,…
  • Nexus 7 Out Of Stock On Google Play, Prompts Nexus 8 Speculation

    Tyler Lee
    1 Aug 2014 | 3:51 am
    We have been hearing rumblings of a certain Nexus 8 for a while now, and for those unfamiliar, the Nexus 8 is said to be a new tablet from Google that is made by HTC. That being said, could we be getting closer to an official release? Well some have speculated that could be the case as the Nexus 7 on the Google Play Store has been listed as out of stock. The Google Play Stores affected by the out of stock status are both the US and UK stores, so we’re not sure if other Google Play Stores around the world are experiencing a similar shortage as well. However like we said, this has prompted…
  • Interest In “Mini” Smartphones Starting To Wane

    Tyler Lee
    1 Aug 2014 | 3:51 am
    In the past and even today, we have seen Android OEMs release “mini” versions of their flagship smartphones, like the recently released Samsung Galaxy S5 mini and the HTC One mini from 2013 as some examples. However it seems that the demand for such devices is starting to wane, according to a report from DigiTimes who cites sources in Taiwan’s handset supply chain. Their sources revealed that devices from LG and Sony in the form of the LG G3 Beat and the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact have sold less than expected. This is apparently due to an uncompetitive performance-price ratio. We have to…

    We have heard many times in the past of how cellphones have saved lives. No, not because they were used to pull up relevant medical information or made calls to emergency services, but because they actually managed to stop bullets in their tracks. Well if you’re looking for another feel-good story, here’s one. It seems that over in Taiwan, a man was reportedly shot over a bar fight regarding a missing wallet. It started when a man named Han found a wallet on the street, after which he joked that there would be free beer. However the man who the wallet supposedly belonged to, Xu, got mad…
  • Nokia Could Be Thinking About Launching Android Devices

    Tyler Lee
    1 Aug 2014 | 3:32 am
    We know that Nokia has officially sold off their mobile division to Microsoft, but does that mean that they are planning on sitting back and just collect money from their patents? Well from previous reports, that hardly seems like the case, and according to recent job listings, it seems that Nokia could be thinking about possible future Android handsets. Now the Nokia that Microsoft bought focused purely on Windows Phone, although they did dabble in Android which was quickly axed by Microsoft, so perhaps the Nokia that Microsoft didn’t buy will pick up where they left off. Some of the job…

    Note-taking applications in Linux are a dime a dozen. It can be difficult to sort through the feature sets to find the best solution. MyNotex has a near-perfect combination of features and uniqueness to put it into a class of its own. MyNotex is a multipurpose tool to take notes, file documents, and manage information or research. It is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit Deb and RPM packages. This makes it readily installable for many Ubuntu/Linux Mint and other Debian Linux-based distributions, as well as the Red Hat Linux/Fedora family of distros.

    Russia wants Apple and SAP to turn over their source code in yet another instance of fallout resulting from leaks about NSA surveillance activities. The suggestion reportedly came last week, when Communications Minister Nikolai Nikiforov met with executives of the two companies: Peter Nielsen, Apple's general manager in Russia; and Vyacheslav Orekhov, SAP's managing director in Russia. Russia wants to ensure the right of consumers and corporate users to the privacy of personal data, while also protecting state security.

    The collective's mission of bringing the entire planet online took a step forward Thursday with the release of an app affording limited free mobile Internet access to users in Zambia. While around 85 percent of the world's people are located in areas with cellular network connectivity, only 30 percent access the Internet. In Zambia, just 15 percent have online access, according to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Mobile networks, along with aerial access points, are key to helping more people get online.

LittleBits offers modules that are used, like Legos, to build gizmos with electronic capabilities. The modules are held together by magnets, and no soldering or wiring is needed. "The product comes in a range of styles from those aimed at primary school education to maker-inclined individuals and groups," said Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT.

The update introduces Cortana to China and the UK in beta form, and Canada, India and Australia in alpha mode. Cortana is only just starting to make waves in the market, several years after Apple debuted Siri, while Android's Google Now has been available for some time. Cortana is named after the AI character Cortana in Microsoft's Halo video game series.

A bunch of talented, well-known security professionals started running for seats on the (ISC)2 board, and now we have powerful voices for improvement, including Wim Remes, Jennifer Minella and Liquidmatrix’s own Dave Lewis.

I know what you’re thinking: “You’re an idiot, Brenner. Of course he was good. He was one hell of a hacker. You shouldn’t have to watch an old video to know that.” Here’s the thing: None of us will ever forget his showmanship or his fun and gentle manner. But watching the video reminded me of how dedicated he was to righting wrongs and using his talents for the greater good. The…

    Scientists have succeeded in making bodies see through for the first time. And it does NOT look good. (If you have even the slightest suspicion that you might not want to see a photo of a transparent mouse, follow that instinct. Trust me.) But freakish as it may seem, turning organs clear is a huge scientific breakthrough – one that has the potential to revolutionise medicine. Until now, researchers’ attempts to get a look inside organs have all had the side effect of serious tissue damage, meaning there wasn’t much left to study. But a team from the California Institute of Technology…

    So how’s this for a Friday afternoon rumour? Android Authority has spotted that Google’s own Nexus 7 tablet is currently listed as “out of stock” on the Google Play store. How can Google sell out? Wouldn’t it have huge stockpiles of the own-brand tablets ready to go? Wouldn’t it have seen this coming and thus have ordered thousands more be made? The speculation is that this could indicate that Google could be on the verge of announcing the much-rumoured Nexus 8 – the latest incremental upgrade to its Nexus tablets which, like the name implies, will…

Nokia is apparently looking for mobile photography engineers who have experience writing drivers for Android which rather suggests that the company isn’t done with phones just yet.

    James O'Malley

    We’ve known for some time that the PS4 has had the edge in the console war so far – comfortably outselling the Xbox One in every comparison so far, but could it be heading towards taking a decisive lead? New figures suggest the console is outselling its rival by three PS4s for every one Xbox One sold. The analysis comes courtesy of MCV, and like every comparison, it isn’t quite bullet proof – but does appear indicative. In an earnings call last week Sony apparently revealed that 3.5m PS4s and PS3s in the quarter ending June 30th. That’s both consoles: Though MCV…

  • Oculus' DK2 uses the Galaxy Note 3 AMOLED panel, overclocked for lower persistence

    31 Jul 2014 | 9:21 pm
    Last month Oculus started to ship their second-gen (DK2) development kits - for over 40,000 pre-order customers. Those Gen-2 devices switched the 7" LCD used in the first-generation headsets to newer AMOLED panels. Back when they unveiled the DK2, Oculus explained that they wanted a low persistence display, as it makes an incredible difference. Oculus said that their OLED runs much faster than any other OLED panel on the market.It was always assumed the panel maker was SDC (they even announced a co-development effort later on), but the actual display was unknown. Today iFixit posted a…

    24 Jul 2014 | 4:06 am
    Researchers from France's SPINTEC/CEA developed a a new multi-bit MRAM storage paradigm that may enable a large density boost for MRAM devices. The researchers achieved up to 4 bits per cell on 110-nm devices.Multi-bit per cell relies on multiple-voltage levels that correspond to various magnetic configurations. this is readable by key features of the electrical response (extrema points). This research used Crocus' Magnetic Logic Unit (MLU) technology. Crocus is affiliated with SPINTEC. The team now wants to develop a fully functional multi-bit MLU memory product. They also say that…

    19 Jun 2014 | 6:33 am
    Researchers from New Zealand's Victoria University are developing MRAM devices (MTJs) based on rare earth nitrides (RENs). RENs, grown under ulta-high vacuum are both magnetic and semiconducting.The team is basing its work on europium nitride, which is not usually magnetic, but has been "tricked" into behaving like a magnet by being produced with slightly too few nitrogen atoms. Those RENs are grown in France's Centre for Research on Hetero-Epitaxy and Applications. Source: ZDNet
  • Graphene Quantum Dots to enable next-gen flash memory devices

    19 Jun 2014 | 2:36 am
    One of the problems with flash memory is that it is sensitive to defects. To solve this problem, researchers from Samsung Electronics are developing flash devices based on graphene quantum dots (GQDs). The performance of such a device is promising, with an electron density that is comparable to semiconductor and metal nanocrystal based memories. Those flash memory can also be made flexible and transparent.The researchers used GQDs in three different sizes (6, 12, and 27 nm) between silicon dioxide layers. The memory of the QDs depend on their sizes: the 12 nm dot for example offers the…
  • CNT-based NRAM may enable a universal memory

    14 Jun 2014 | 11:37 am
    Nantero has been developing NRAM (carbon nanotube based memory) for a long time, and now they collaborated with researchers from Chuo University to show how this memory features high-speed, low-power-consumption and high-reliability operation.An NRAM memory cell is made from a thin CNT film sandwiched between two metal electrodes. When voltage is applied, the CNTs come closer to each other (due to electrostatic force and intermolecular force) and the resistivity is lowered. When the voltage drops to zero, the CNTs do not separate as they are tightly attached. This creates a non-volatile…
  • Toshiba developed STT-MRAM based microprocessor cache memory

    12 Jun 2014 | 5:45 am
    Toshiba developed new STT-MRAM technology that can be used to enable MRAM based cache memory for microprocessors. The L2 cache alone uses about 80% of the power consumed by the CPU, so reducing the power consumption of the cache is very important - and STT-MRAM may reduce this consumption by about 60%. It's not clear how close is this technology to actually being commercialized.Toshiba's new STT-MRAM uses a dual-cell (2T-2MTJ) circuit in which the two MTJs have complementary resistive states (high and low resistive states). This eliminates the leak path and also increases the readout signal…

Or to recent reports from companies like Google, where pretty much every tech employee is a white male—offices only lightly sprinkled with some Asians and perhaps a few chicks.

  • The Problem with Social Media Sharing

    Phil Schneider
    31 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    Sharing is not just a pre-school problem. My daughter is about to turn four, which means that preschool is only a few weeks away. We’ve really been trying to prepare her by getting her to bed earlier and waking up earlier as well. This is not going well. We are getting more traction in other areas though, like manners and low-assistance pottying. However, she still struggles with sharing toys, even—or even especially—when they aren’t hers. This has been a fairly hot-button issue around our house the past few weeks, just as I was reading the very helpful Manage Your Day-to-Day.

  • UK Woman Denied Passport Because Her Name Might Infringe On Disney's Copyright

    Tim Cushing
    1 Aug 2014 | 5:32 am
    With all the talk of terrorism keeping government officials firmly focused on travel documents (and electronics), it really comes as no surprise that they're on top of any passport anomalies. Like a traveler sporting one more "Skywalker" in their name than the other 99.9999% of the population. [via several TD readers, but first from Jon Jones] Her namesake may be able to travel across galaxies in Star Wars, but Laura Matthews from Southend – whose middle name is Skywalker – isn't even able to get on a budget airline to the Med. The 29-year-old added the middle name by deed poll in…
  • French Company That Sells Exploits To The NSA Sat On An Internet Explorer Vulnerability For Three Years

    Tim Cushing
    1 Aug 2014 | 3:33 am
    Thanks to Snowden's leaks and a host of other information proceeding those, it's become clear that intelligence agencies -- despite their constant and loud "worrying" about cyberattacks -- are more than happy to make computers and the Internet itself less safe by purchasing, discovering and hoarding vulnerabilities. These are exploited to their fullest before being reported to the entities that can patch the holes. In the meantime, the NSA and others make use of security holes and vulnerabilities, leaving millions of members of the public exposed. It may just be arrogance. Maybe these…

    It's funny how strong-arming governments, theoretically able to bypass the red-tape that makes republics and democracies so slow-moving, just can't produce that kind of nimble posture when walking back their attempts to thought-control the internet. Time and again, we find examples of governments taking Orwellian measures against their own people on internet sites and social media networks, finding them to be far less useful than they'd thought, and then merely inching away from those attempts rather than outright reversing them. Ukraine recently served as an example of this, when they…
  • Appeals Court Smacks Down Team Prenda... Again

    Mike Masnick
    31 Jul 2014 | 8:29 pm
    Back in April it seemed fairly clear that the 7th Circuit Appeals Court panel set up to hear the Prenda appeal of the Lightspeed v. Anthony Smith case was not impressed by Team Prenda. I mean, when a judge directly states "there's a lot of shell games going on here" and also points out that it's "shocking" that the lawyer representing Prenda has no idea about the relationship between Prenda, Alpha Law and Steele Hansmeier (a central issue in the case), you expect that the eventual ruling is going to not go well for Team Prenda, but you never really know until the ruling comes out. It has come…

    This 420 sq. ft. Soho apartment might look a little familiar. It’s gotten tons of press ever since owner Graham Hill showed off the results of a redesign courtesy of a couple architecture students—a redesign that packed eight rooms into one. Well, it seems like Hill is moving out, and you can move in, for a price. A high price. The apartment is being listed on the market for $995,000.

But, what does that huge number (currently at 1,252,777) actually mean? For most app developers and smartphone users, a lot less than it would appear at first blush. Adjust is an analytics company that has dived into the numbers behind the App Store.

  • Kodak 35mm Film Lives to See Another Day in Hollywood

    Chance Kinney
    30 Jul 2014 | 9:34 pm
    For many, the difference between film and digital recording isn’t a difference of technology, but one of medium. Movies shot on celluloid film have both tangible and psychological importance to the creators and the movie-watchers, and in the hands of masters, film can still be used to terrific and unique aesthetic effect. That’s why it’s good to know that film will still be around, at least for a little while. Kodak, one of the last few producers of 35mm and 70mm film, had planned on completely halting production of film this year. That has something to do with the fact that…

    Raja Manoharan
    23 May 2014 | 3:21 am
    App monetization is a hot topic today. More and more app developers are finding that their users don’t want to pay to download an app – they want it free, and they’re willing to suffer through advertising and other marketing methods to get that free price point. In fact, free apps routinely outperform paid apps in all categories save a couple (business utilities and navigation). Does that mean you’re doomed never to make a profit from your efforts? Not at all. Freemium has become the new standard, and some experts expect it to account for up to 93% of the global app market in just a…

    Getting your content shared is essential for anyone engaged in online marketing of any kind. Going “viral” is the goal, but it’s harder to achieve than you might realize. Truth be told, there’s no golden rule, no magic bullet, that guarantees your content will go viral. In fact, most marketing experts have no idea why one post goes viral when another doesn’t achieve that critical mass. However, while viral spread might be the Holy Grail of online marketing, creating content that get shared is more important. You might never attain “viral” status, but good content that’s shared…

Typical of a BlackBerry, the Passport employs a portrait style QWERTY keyboard. However, this time around, they've minimized the layout by shrinking the row of buttons to a mere 3 - as opposed to the 4 we're normally accustomed to seeing. Additionally, numbers and punctuations aren't available through the keyboard, but they've been turned into virtual keys that sit above the top row for quick access. And during our demo, we…

    As expected, Microsoft is finally revealing all there is about Update 1 for Windows Phone 8.1. Known internally as GDR1 for 'general distribution release,' this update is one of two for the 8.1 operating system in 2014. The news comes out of Beijing, China where Microsoft's Joe Belfiore announced the release during his keynote, in addition to the expansion of Cortana to the UK and China. Coming next week for Preview for Developers. If Microsoft can keep this pace of updates up, they've got something very good going. A very welcome contrast to the slow and monolithic approach the company took…
  • Another day, another sensationalist, unfounded security story

    29 Jul 2014 | 11:28 am
    Dan Goodin, at Ars Technica, is writing about a security flaw in Android. It's got all the usual scary-scary language about doom and gloom, quotes from antivirus peddlers, and it wasn't long until sensationalist Apple site AppleInsider took it all one step further (relevant). So, is this a real security threat, or are we looking at sensationalism run amok? This is the issue in a nutshell. The Fake ID vulnerability stems from the failure of Android to verify the validity of cryptographic certificates that accompany each app installed on a device. The OS relies on the credentials when…
  • Arment on 'app rot'

    29 Jul 2014 | 7:33 am
    We've touched on this topic several times already - most recently only a few days ago: the application store model is facing some serious issues at the moment, to the heavy detriment of users and developers alike. If you don't want to take my word for it - and really, you shouldn't, as you should make up your own mind - Marco Arment has written a great summary of all the problems the application store model is facing, with a lot of quotes from other sources to come to a good overview. Apple's App Store design is a big part of the problem. The dominance and prominence of "top lists" stratifies…

Pitting the Apple’s Siri digital assistant against the newly unveiled Cortana in Windows Phone 8.1, the advertisement shows how an iPhone 5S pitted against a low-end Lumia 635 fairs as Cortana handles location-based reminders, along with traffic alerts which Siri is not able to do.

    X- Window System is the core graphic-framework for Unix/Linux desktops. Sadly, it does not works very well with low-power mini-pc's like Raspberry Pi and therefore alternatives like Wayland are being developed. MicroXwin is a kernel-based X Windows implementation, which claims to be the smallest and fastest X implementation promising a faster, stable and has low-latency GUI on mini-pc's with the added advantage of being a unified Linux distribution that can run Android and Debian/Ubuntu applications simultaneously.

In addition to recounting his remarkable career in journalism and public service, an event nine years ago that’s now referred to by early contributors to Wikipedia as “the Wikipedia Seigenthaler incident” earned a paragraph in Mr. Seigenthaler’s New York Time’s obituary.

(Since my first attempt at doing it, the tools have become incredibly more sophisticated). On the website for the public radio show, This American Life, I just ran across a map-as-feature that I can’t recall seeing on another news site.

    All week, anyone who follows the news has been carpet-bombed with punditry informing them that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s defeat was because he supported immigration reform. Yet now, polls on both the right and left are revealing that immigration reform was far down on the list of issues that influenced the election’s outcome. Reporting on a poll conducted by Americans for a Conservative Direction, Politico says, “Only 22 percent of Virginia residents who voted for Cantor’s opponent, Dave Brat, cited immigration as the primary reason for their vote.

There was so much going on that it was a bit of sensory overload, much like walking down the Las Vegas strip for the first time. Google announced many welcomed Android improvements such as a battery saver mode and lock-screen notifications; something you'd previously need to use add-ons for as mentioned in Android is better.

    Last week Dropbox launched a new gallery app called Carousel. It's a focused app, only letting people view their photos stored on Dropbox1 and conveniently share them. There are a few interesting parts in the app but there is one piece I’d like to highlight: Swipe down to hide. This gesture doesn't delete your photo, it simply removes it from the gallery view. It's not a heavy action. There's no cognitive overhead, no thinking "wait, do I want this shot?" as there generally is when deleting items.

For my meager DNS needs that ended up being a huge price hike: from $39 per year to $25 per month1. Prices were set to take effect a month later. I decided to put my current dev work — designing and building new photoblog functionality to showcase my Japan trip photos — on hold to move away from Zerigo. I chose to switch to AWS Route 53.

    The Chinese start up OnePlus finally released the extremely hyped OnePlus One last month after months of insane hype and now it seems like that the company is preparing on releasing a smart watch as well. We all know that Samsung and Motorola are already ready to bring their smart watches in the market, and now it seems that OnePlus will be stepping up once again.

    One of the main carriers in Japan KDDI went official with a newer, improved version of HTC J Butterfly.  This one is basically the HTC One M8, however, it will be sold somewhere else and there are some changes around the phone. Even looks slightly different. The biggest different in this phone is that it comes with water resistant. This makes it the first phone from HTC to come with the protection against water. This being said, if you have been a fan of HTC’s amazing BoomSound speakers, then you would have to say good bye to them. Since the phone comes with water proofing, HTC had to…

However, as compared to the predecessor, the G3 is extremely improved. It offers a better screen with higher resolution, faster processor and more freedom in terms of usability. Whereas, the Z2 isn’t as behind as it may sound. The camera is improved over the Z1 and now offers 4k video recording at 30 frames per second as well as slow motion videos at 120 frames per…

However, not every user loves the default gallery. Despite having enough functionality, some people love the artistic flare you can get in several third party gallery apps. Luckily, when you are using an Android, you know there is enough stuff on the Google Play Store to ensure that you won’t have any issues finding what you want.

But then again, the program isn’t happening any time before next year so we still have some time to see where Google goes with the Nexus line up.

  • 2015 Cadillac Escalade Review: An Elegant Tank on Wheels

    1 Aug 2014 | 1:05 am
    When I first heard about the Cadillac redesign of the Escalade I was very excited by what I saw and couldn’t wait to check it out at the LA Auto Show, late last year. The reason why is mostly because the redesign of the Escalade brings the Escalade into the design language of the ‘new’ Cadillac brand which includes the new Cadillac ATS, CTS, XTS and ELR just to name a few. When you looked at the 2014 Escalade, it simply didn’t fit in and it felt like Cadillac was just making minor tweaks to the previous model years. Even though, they did make some significant changes…

    When we look at the world of covering technology today, we see that (unfortunately) most of the media and worse, paid up blogs and forum shilling tactics, are smothering the information which the public should receive. It is hard to get information when technology sites have to live off selling ads in exchange for a set number of awards per year (in all of its five and a half years, Bright Side of News* received plenty of those offers from Far East), or even worse, unmarked advertorials. We all live in a period of time when the amount of respect for a profession of journalism is at an…
  • Nvidia Disables GPU PhysX when 2nd non-NV GPU is Installed

    Anshel Sag
    31 Jul 2014 | 6:18 pm
    We were recently alerted that Nvidia’s new 340.52 drivers (that enable all the new SHIELD tablet features) actually had a feature that disabled GPU PhysX in certain systems where two GPUs are present and one of them is not an Nvidia GPU. Upon digging we were able to find that this feature is in fact in Nvidia’s own release notes for the new drivers. Obviously this would seem fairly nefarious for Nvidia to be disabling a feature simply because you have two GPUs installed, which in the past has caused some issues, but never really forced certain features to be disabled. As such, we…

As such, these drives are optimized for RAID arrays. The specifications of the drive are below: Interface – SATA 6.0Gb/s Capacity – 4TB RPM – 7200 RPM…

People cannot buy what they do not know about. We think about everything we offer, because it is our job. But our customers have their own jobs. And even if we’ve told them (repeatedly!) about the other products and services they can buy from us, they are probably not aware of them. How do we…

Rather, it demonstrates your outstanding value to your customers and prospects. It offers ideas, tools, techniques, approaches, and advice for improvement. If you sell products, help your market get the most out of them. If you sell services, teach people how to improve in your area of expertise.

    LinkedIn announced the launch of a major refresh to its Sales Navigator tool in the middle of its Q2 earnings report on Thursday. It’s described as an “enterprise-focused SaaS product. On the company’s earnings call, CEO Jeff Weiner had this to say about it: “This new SaaS product delivers a customized view into LinkedIn to better connect sales professionals with the right buyers by leveraging key insights and connections across the LinkedIn network.

  • Foursquare’s New App Coming Next Week as Company Battles Backlash

    1 Aug 2014 | 6:23 am
    Foursquare probably knew that unbundling its features and removing check-ins altogether from its flagship app would ruffle a few feathers. I guess the company maybe thought there was the off chance that people would take to Swarm, its new check-in only app, like people did to the original Foursquare app. But Swarm’s 1.5 star rating in the App Store and the social media conversation surrounding the shift paints a rather bleak picture. Still, Foursquare is trucking ahead, and plans to launch the all-new Foursquare – the one solely focused on local search and discovery – next week.
  • Blue Ivy: Beyonce and Jay Z Using Her to Convey Unity?

    1 Aug 2014 | 6:16 am
    Blue Ivy, celebrity (daughter) by proxy of Beyonce and Jay Z, appears to be part of a plan put in place by her famous parents to convey unity in the presence of their fans. The little girl may soon be part of a broken family but her mom and dad are pushing to squelch that rumor by presenting a united front. On Wednesday night Beyonce and Jay Z took to the stage in Seattle–a stop on their On the Run tour–and appeared as though they were ‘Crazy in Love’ for one another. It was so over the top that it looked fake–and it may very well be. Blue Ivy’s parents are…

    Michelle Shocked has released a new album and it is now available for purchase on! You should know before you go that the album is composed entirely of nothing. The 11-track Michelle Shocked album is composed of songs that are supposedly pitched too high for human ears. They are for dogs to listen to, not you. Michelle Shocked named the songs after executives and other top players in the music industry, specifically the digital and streaming crowd. The album is appropriately titled Inaudible Women and Michelle Shocked says that she made it for dogs. Michelle Shocked says in her…
  • The Killing: The Final Season Is Now On Netflix

    Well, The Killing is now officially over, as Netflix just released the final season. As soon as you can get through six episodes of the show, which shouldn’t take long for fans, it’s time to call it a day. The show was promising when AMC first put it out, but people seemed to lose interest as it went on. Netflix was good enough to bring it back to give it a proper conclusion, so fans can an enjoy a complete series on its service (okay, yeah, there’s value in that for the company too). All New Season. All New Episodes. The Final Season is now streaming only on Netflix.

  • Rotation App gives you full Control over the Orientation of your Android Smartphone

    Arpit Verma
    31 Jul 2014 | 12:12 am
    Most of the touch screen smartphones today come with an accelerometer that basically turn the orientation of the screen based on how you are holding the phone, be it in landscape or portrait mode. However, just about every phone comes with a rotation lock control that fixes your phone to remain in the portrait mode. What if you want more out of your device, maybe you want to lock the phone in landscape mode or maybe you want to disable rotation for just a few selected apps? This is where Rotation app comes into play. The application basically gives you full control of the rotation of your…

    30 Jul 2014 | 2:56 pm
    Motorola has made the Motorola Moto G available starting at Rs 10,500 for a limited time in India. Motorola says that the stock of the device is limited so you must hurry up to pick up the device while you can. Not just the 8 GB variant, the 16 GB device has also seen a price drop of Rs 2,00 meaning it is available for a cut price bargain of Rs 11,999. It is not clear how many eact units are up for sale during this period or for how long will the discount last, but our guess is that this move has been made after the growing popularity of Xiaomi and its fans which has in a way subdued the…

  • Windows Phone 8.1 Update brings Cortana to India

    30 Jul 2014 | 4:03 am
    After announcing Cortana, almost 4 months ago, since it announced Cortana as a part of the Windows Phone 8.1 update, Microsoft has decided to bring the personal assistant to India as an Alpha. The latest Windows Phone 8.1 update will bring Cortana as a Beta to China, while other countries such as India and Australia and Canada will receive it as an Alpha. The reason for this is slow development due to regional restrictions. Since Cortana uses a lot of location as well as contextual features, you can understand why Microsoft is calling this an Alpha release as there is no doubt there would be…
  • Checkout How Student’s Built Aircrafts Flew at the Farnborough Air Show

    28 Jul 2014 | 10:50 pm
    Air Shows are meant to be the ultimate showcase events for the built aircrafts. The recently concluded Farnborough Air show saw several marvellous aircrafts such as the Boeing 787 as well as the Airbus Neo lines of planes participate. The star of the show, without a doubt was the Boeing 787 with its maneuvers and ability to fly low altitudes while still not giving anything away in terms of the stability loss. However, another interesting event at the Farnborough Air Show was that it was the first time here that a couple of aircrafts made by students took part and actually flew. Everyone who…

  • Explained: Why Connectivity Speeds Differ Between ISPs

    It’s no secret that Internet connection speeds differ between ISP’s (Internet Service Providers). It happens all the time. But ever wondered why? Why do the speeds of connectivity flux between providers? Don’t all major competitors offer about the same stuff? Actually, no; they don’t. You see, different Internet service providers utilize different network hardware devices, different connectivity substrates, and also operate in different climactic conditions – all of which can significantly affect the end user’s Internet connectivity speeds.

    Talking to my customers, everybody is asking about the Internet of Things. There is so much information about the IoT, that it can be confusing to figure out how to solve your specific business problem with all the options available. Where the rubber meets the road is putting hardware, software, and services together to get to a cogent solution. All while reducing costs and time to market, of course. So when I heard someone wanting to connect to Bug Labs’ I was intrigued. Here’s a service that claims to make the sending of data very easy. I don’t even have to sign up for a free…

    Launching a new product is never easy, and it can even be more challenging when the product is one of a kind. It takes creativity, out of the box thinking, lots of elbow grease, a little bit of luck and persistence. Little more than a year after its launch, you’d be hard pressed to find an iPad or iPhone enthusiast who has not heard about xPrintServer. While this product line – and the market opportunity for networked mobile printing– is in many ways still in its infancy, xPrintServer is well positioned to capitalize on the need for a cost-effective and easy to deploy networked…

  • Viber reaches another milestone: over 400 million users

    Adeel Inam
    31 Jul 2014 | 8:48 pm
    One of the reasons why Ratuken acquired Viber for an exorbitant price of $900 million was because of the monthly increase in user base of the app. It took less than 4 years for the instant messaging and voice over internet protocol service to reach a milestone of 400 million active users. The platform is notorious for its robust encryption; which is probably why it has been attracting users who wants their conversations to be kept away from the prying eyes and ears of the government. An example of this can be the user base increasing exponentially in the Middle East. When Macro and co-founder…

Other competitors may try to hold their own against the price-performance marvel, but they will be thwarted by the OnePlus One, without even breaking a sweat. Another advantage of using the OnePlus One is the OS powering the device, it runs a custom ROM developed by CyanogenMod, which is based on Android version 4.4.2.

    There was a time when the term ‘portable music’ and Sony were almost synonymous. The Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation is one of the first and largest manufacturers of quality portable music devices, but they have been sidelined in recent years by Apple’s iPod. Maybe that is why Sony is bringing back its biggest product to date, a Walkman called NWZ-ZX1. The NWZ-ZX1 is different from all earlier Walkman models launched by Sony. It features a 4-inch touchscreen and is a complete modern iteration of the original Walkman. NWZ-ZX1′s thickness is almost twice…

This article will begin to tell a story of building bonds of friendship between…

This worked fine for us, but sooping up our Mac’s with more RAM or upgrading allowed…

  • Apple to flip the switch on its own Content Delivery Network resulting in faster transfers

    Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

    Apple has reportedly flipped the switch on its own CDN which means it can more quickly and efficiently deliver files to iOS and Mac users running Apple cloud services or accessing any of the conten from iTunes or the App Store. Apple has historically relied on CDN's like Akamai but is now renting bandwith from various ISPs in order to speed up various transfers. This means Apple customers should experience faster downloads, software updates, backups and file transfers. This also bodes well for the upcoming iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite releases which will rely heavily on cloud transfers for their…

      This is the second part of our Mobile facts to Keep in Mind (see last week Monday Note – or here on Quartz). Today, a few more basic trends and a closer look at healthy markets for digital news.  Last week, we spoke about the preeminence of mobile applications. Not all readers agree, of course, but I found more data to support the finding; among many sources, the remarkable Reuters Institute Digital News Report (PDF here) is worth reading: 47% of smartphone users say they use mainly apps for news According to the report, this figure has risen by 6 percentage points in just one…
  • Microsoft’s New CEO Needs An Editor

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    13 Jul 2014 | 9:42 am
      Satya Nadella’s latest message to the troops – and to the world – is disquieting. It lacks focus, specifics, and, if not soon sharpened, his words will worry employees, developers, customers, and even shareholders. As I puzzled over the public email Microsoft’s new CEO sent to his troops, Nicolas Boileau’s immortal dictum came to mind: Whatever is well conceived is clearly said, And the words to say it flow with ease. Clarity and ease are sorely missing from Satya Nadella’s 3,100 plodding words, which were supposed to paint a clear, motivating future for 127,000…

      By the end of 2014, many news media will collect around 50% of their page views via mobile devices. Here are trends to remember before devising a mobile strategy. (First of a two-part series.) In the news business, mobile investments are on the rise. That’s the pragmatic response to a major trend: Users shift from web to mobile. Already, all major media outlets are bracing for a momentous threshold: 50% of their viewership coming from mobile devices (smartphones and tablets). Unfortunately, the revenue stream is not likely to follow anytime soon: making users pay for mobile…
  • The Network Is the Computer: Google Tries Again

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    6 Jul 2014 | 1:29 pm
      All you need is a dumb device attached to a smart network. It’s an old idea that refuses to die despite repeated failures. Now it’s Google’s turn. In the late 1980s, Sun Microsystems used a simple, potent war cry to promote its servers: The Network Is The Computer. Entrust all of your business intelligence, computing power, and storage to Sun’s networked SPARC systems and you can replace your expensive workstation with a dumb, low cost machine. PCs are doomed. Nothing of the sort happened, of course. Sun’s venture was disrupted by inexpensive servers assembled from the PC…
  • Google might not be a monopoly, after all

    Frédéric Filloux

      Despite its dominance, Google doesn’t fit the definition of a monopoly. Still, the Search giant’s growing disconnect from society could lead to serious missteps and, over time, to a weakened position.  In last week’s column, I opined about the Open Internet Project’s anti-trust lawsuit against Google. Reactions showed divided views of the search engine’s position. Granted, Google is an extremely aggressive company, obsessed with growth, scalability, optimization — and also with its own vulnerability. But is it really a monopoly in the traditional and historical…

  • The Evolution of Touchscreen Technology

    Andre Infante
    31 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    In the tech space, time moves quickly; a little more than seven years ago, smartphones as we know them did not exist — now, they’re the most profitable tech industry on Earth (and so prevalent that it’s actually a problem). A consequence of this is that it’s easy to lose sight of just how revolutionary and important the technologies we use really are. Touchscreens and multitouch interfaces are now a permanent part of the fundamental language of human-computer interaction. All future UIs will carry echoes of touch interfaces with them, in the same way that the keyboard…

  • 5 Reasons Why You Should Flash OmniROM To Your Android Device

    Christian Cawley
    31 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    There are a whole host of alternative ROMs just waiting for you to flash them to your Android phone or tablet — so why should you choose OmniROM? Perhaps it’s the philosophy behind the project. Developed by a lot of former CyanogenMod team members, OmniROM was built as a reaction to CyanogenMod “selling out”, as it is now being developed as a commercial enterprise — a decision that has led to a lot of controversy. After all, CyanogenMod was an open source project, one that relied on a community of developers. OmniROM, then, can be considered the spiritual successor…

    We all love our laptops. They are small, convenient, powerful, life saving, and our daily source of entertainment. Finishing all of the work you need to complete is so much easier when you have the mobility to take your work anywhere. And when you can take your work anywhere, you can work for longer. Often, however, we spend hours upon hours sitting hunched over our computer, and as amazing as they are, working on them ends up being the cause of our painful back and neck aches.

  • Winning Back Customers You Lost Before

    Lauren Downey
    28 Jul 2014 | 10:38 pm
    Every business organisation, no matter how successful, has lost customers in the past. This could be due to any of a myriad of reasons, from a poor customer service experience that’s left the customer disenchanted, to discovering they’ve been paying more than they should have for the products and/or services they’ve purchased. However, it isn’t necessarily the experience in question that dictates whether or not there remains a possibility of winning back a disenchanted customer, but rather the actions taken to win them back. There are no set-in-stone methods that are guaranteed to…

    Patrick King
    27 Jul 2014 | 10:00 pm
    I’ve been a designer for almost my entire life, dating back to 28 years ago this coming weekend, when I made my first logo in a kitchen in eastern Ohio. For the better part of my career, I wrestled with one crippling fear – that one day, I would run out of ideas. Afraid that the well would run dry, and I would no longer be able to rise to the challenge of creating new stuff. Over recent years, I’ve decided to confront this fear instead of living with it. What I’ve come to realize is as liberating as the act of creating itself. This year, legendary designer Massimo Vignelli passed away…

    A new material structure developed at MIT generates steam by soaking up the sun. The structure — a layer of graphite flakes and an underlying carbon foam — is a porous, insulating material structure that floats on water. When sunlight hits the structure’s surface, it creates a hotspot in the graphite, drawing water up through the material’s pores, where it evaporates as steam. The brighter the light, the more steam is more

  • Apple, Beats Deal Could Result in 200 Job Cuts

    31 Jul 2014 | 2:09 pm
    The formal integration of Apple and Beats Electronics has begun, but not all Beats employees are coming to Cupertino. And of those who do, only some will receive temporary assignments. Apple has allegedly laid off an unspecified number of Beats workers whose positions overlap with the infrastructure Apple already has in place, which likely affects […]

  • Now there’s much more to PC Power Management

    Anuj Verma
    1 Aug 2014 | 3:00 am
    No doubt, 1E’s NightWatchman is second-to-none when it comes to PC Power Management. It’s been more than 12 years and there’s not even a single competitor who has come close to beating NightWatchman in terms of power saving. But there’s lot more to what NightWatchman can bring to its customers when it comes to managing their estate. Wondering what and how? Have you ever asked what is the percentage of hardware waste that you are incurring every year? Do you wonder which machines in your estate are seldom being used or not used at all? In short do you know what percentage of hardware…

    On July 7, news hit the wire that Attachmate are allegedly suing Mobistar to the tune of $6.12m for the illegal use of their ReflectionX product. It’s not surprising when Attachmate is regarded by many as one of the more aggressive software vendors when it comes to software auditing. It isn’t solely Attachmate that is seen as aggressive: The big five (Microsoft, SAP, IBM, Symatec, Adobe) are all upping their auditing activity, and why not when there is big money to be made? As I’ve said previously (‘Software License Audits – Reputation is Everything‘), the average audit…
  • 1E Nomad and IIS Request Filtering

    Peter Clark
    28 Jul 2014 | 3:19 am
    A ConfigMgr client uses HTTP or HTTPS to get content from a distribution point (DP) when running a deployment that requires content. IIS has a built in function called IIS Request Filtering which blocks certain file extensions, folders and file names. Some examples include: <filename>.resx (file extensions) Visual C++ (double escaping) \bin folder (hidden segments) The ConfigMgr client doesn’t get blocked when downloading content from a ConfigMgr DP over HTTP or HTTPS. This is because when the ConfigMgr client downloads a blocked file extension rather that requesting the…

Are you simply finding that the Apple devices are somehow just becoming more and more popular with not only the executives but also the next layers in the business? Once these devices are seen within the enterprise, it is very unlikely that the numbers will dwindle since users tend to share experiences of IT with each other and as a result the wow / cool factor of a MacBook Air and its relative simplicity of use (in the eye of the beholder) will…

    To an un-choreographed eye, MIT may not seem like a place with a thriving ballroom dance community. In reality, the Institute’s Ballroom Dance Team is perennially top-ranked, and the non-competitive Ballroom Dance Club celebrates its 40-year anniversary on August 9. “I’m sure some people are surprised that MIT’s has good ballroom dancers,” says Allison Chang PhD ’12. “It can be a rigid place to be, but ballroom dance fits that image better than any other kind of dance.

In a recent TED talk, Ito announced his new motto: “deploy or die.” The very nature of innovative has been changed by the Internet, he says, because individuals and small groups can create new products by taking the software development process—continual A/B testing, iteration, and new testing—into the marketplace. He described a “rainforest of innovation” coming out of China’s manufacturing plants as students design…

  • A game created "as if games were the only medium on Earth"

    Clive Thompson
    22 Jul 2014 | 7:43 pm
    I recently picked up 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die. I couldn't resist the title, which so neatly refracts the gibbering cultural anxieties of lists like "1000 novels everyone must read". You see this sort of highbrow listicle often in the realms of literary fiction, movies, possibly poetry. It's classic canon panic, and I say that with a degree of charity and warmth; I actually think arguing heatedly and even snobbishly about what works of art are important and mindbending can be a lot of fun, and occasionally useful to the parties involved. But there's something hilarious and…

    That's one of the opening pages of Conjectures on Original Composition, a book about creative genius published by the English poet Edward Young in 1759. It's considered one of the first big essays to tout the idea that "originals" -- writers of deep originality -- are more important and awesome than derivative folks. I heard about Conjectures while reading a different essay this evening, and since I'm sort of obsessed with tracking the rise of our modern (and disastrous) conceit that originality is something that just kind of wells up from inside you I immediately dialed up Conjectures on…

  • Of Star Wars "crawl" poetry and the weirdness of our attention spans

    22 Jan 2014 | 6:34 am
    Yesterday I saw a picture on Boing Boing: A "behind the scenes" shot of how they made the iconic opening "crawl" text for The Empire Strikes Back. I'd always assumed, naively, that the crawl was done with computer graphics, but no: It was a steampunk affair, with the text printed on a piece of glass and filmed at a steep angle by a camera. But what really struck me was the quote from George Lucas about the formal properties of a crawl: "The crawl is such a hard thing because you have to be careful that you're not using too many words that people don't understand," Lucas has said. "It's like a…

IBM’s introduction of the Bluemix Platform as a Service (PaaS) to the marketplace earlier this year builds on the existing capabilities of Jazz (/ introduced in 2008. While Jazz addresses the requirements and design stages of the application lifecycle, Bluemix extends IBM’s cloud-based capabilities to development, testing, and production as well.

    The Rise of Cloud-based APM Solutions In my last blog, I called today’s enterprise application landscape “a dog’s breakfast”1 as far as complexity and heterogeneity are concerned. A growing number of APM vendors would likely agree. Regardless of whether you are on the vendor or the consumer side, application management— as opposed to simple application monitoring— is an inherently difficult task. Perhaps for this reason, enterprise-grade Application Performance Management solutions—those capable of monitoring, correlating and triaging integrated, distributed applications while…

    Waaay back in the day (say 2002), organizations would ask themselves: “If our customer and prospect (potential customer) information is our most valuable asset, why would we EVER trust it with a 3rd party who would put it with the customer information from other companies?” Today, organizations do not hesitate to start their sales endeavors with the swipe of a credit card and the creation of a account. In fact, the concept of X-as-as-service has grown to have as many definitions as the concept of cloud computing itself. There are infrastructure-as-a-services (IaaS) that…

    Last year, Windows Phone Central broke the news of a 3D space shooter called Solar Warfare coming to Windows Phone and Windows 8. The game impressed us with its Starfox-like gameplay – we don't really see a lot of games of this type on Windows Phone. We followed up earlier this year with the first look at the actual Windows Phone version of the game. It has been a long time coming, but Solar Warfare from TegTap is finally available on Windows Phone! The Windows 8 version should follow later this year.

  • How to use custom fonts in Android apps (and not get fat)

    Daniel Dekański

    Fonts have always been a vital part of brand identity and UI design. With the development of modern Web standards it has become easy to implement customized fonts in websites, but native mobile apps somehow still lag behind in this area. Platform guides warn us against unleashing our creativity in that aspect and state that the built-in fonts have been optimized for memory and performance constraints of mobile devices. I think today, with more and more horse power under the hood of our latest mobile gadgets, we should not limit ourselves to the modest assortment of default typefaces. Going…

    The needs of performers, worse-for-wear teenagers, mile-long queues of traffic, high-tech equipment: they all need looking after at a festival.

    A year ago, I made a promise to myself that somehow I would make it up to San Francisco to experience the ultimate tech paradise. Don’t get me wrong about Los Angeles – L.A. will always have a special place in my heart. But ever since I started getting involved with the tech scene in Southern California, there’s been a part of me wondering what it might be like to be up there. It’s been over a month now since I’ve been in the Bay Area for my internship, and I’ve learned quite a lot already.

    Microsoft had completely put down on of its major feature of DOS from their almost all versions of windows, although you can still make use of it using the CMD (Command Prompt). CMD is the same DOS, integrated onto your OS environment. This allows developers to use any version of windows, as they can use CMD as DOS on the very same environment. The reason for such a deduction is quite obvious as users don’t much use DOS, as after reaching in the era of complex and well designed interface, who would indulge themselves to those complex text commands and lengthy codes?

    In my observation, if there's one thing you lawyers love, it's repeating yourselves. No, not when you speak; it's when you write. Y'all recycle so much old material from briefs and other documents, it puts Ed Begley, Jr. to shame. Some of the problems with all that cutting and pasting are pretty obvious: another client's name being left in (oops) or funky formatting that doesn't match the new document. But others aren't.

    Dave Paul

    Recently, Google made a major change in the way it rewarded authorship. Previously, author portraits were displayed next to any search results tied to a Google+ account. Google took away these portraits with no warning, leaving only a small tagline with the author’s name. While authors may not be pleased, marketers should be. And poof! Google made my author photo vanish into thin air — Cyrus Shepard (@CyrusShepard) June 27, 2014 As discussed last week, this doesn’t change the importance of authorship in the age of content.

    We’ve all heard the phrase “content is king.” The past several years have seen an accelerating trend where search engines reward high-quality, valuable content. That trend definitely won’t reverse anytime soon, but it is taking an interesting twist: If Google’s newest changes are any clue, it’s not the content that’s king but the content creators. And just because your site releases great content doesn’t make you a content creator. It’s the individual authors that Google is increasingly shining the spotlight on, not the companies or entities that publish their work. That…

  • IT Budgets Up In 2015, Hiring Tepid

    Network Computing
    28 Jul 2014 | 3:05 pm
    A survey shows organizations will spend more on IT next year, but IT pros don’t expect those extra dollars will translate into bigger IT departments. The good news is that IT pros expect their budgets to increase in 2015. The bad news is that they don’t expect to get much staffing help as they manage an influx of new technology. This is the mixed bag of results from a survey released Wednesday by Spiceworks, an IT community platform that provides free IT management tools. The survey showed that 42% of IT professionals expect their budgets to increase in 2015 from this year. The…

  • The Hiring Big Bang Theory Part III: Don't Leave Them Hanging

    Nate DaPore
    17 Jul 2014 | 12:04 pm
    We all know the feeling. You apply for a job, and wait, and wait...and wait some more. You’re wondering if the company received your application, if you’re in the running for the job or just downright out for the count. No one likes to be in limbo during the hiring process. It’s often a full-time job looking for a job, so not knowing where you stand is just straight up frustrating. Jeff Hayden, owner of Blackbird Media, struck a nerve when he recently posted on LinkedIn an article titled “The Worst Hiring Mistake Any Company Can Make.” Jeff argued that failing to follow up and…

    If you’re like most business folks I talk to, finding and holding on to great people is one of your toughest challenges. Let’s be honest. Work isn’t always fun. It’s called “work” for a reason. Most people spend at least a quarter of their time at work every week. And that’s exactly why it’s so important to embrace what makes your company special and let your culture shine. We all know referrals are one the best recruitment avenues, and nothing says “come join our team” like a team member raving about why he or she loves working there. Last week I talked about getting…

    Hace unos días escribí una nota en la que expresaba mi parecer sobre el futuro de Samsung a corto y largo plazo. Su perdida de ventas y de cuota de mercado y la amenaza que representan los fabricantes chinos de smartphones como Lenovo, Huawei, Xiaomi i OnePlus One. Cómo suele ocurrir cuando dices la verdad sobre una marca popular, los fanáticos más extremos de esa marca criticaron todo lo que dije, simplemente porque no les gustó. Sin embargo, los últimos informes de la IDC confirman todo lo que dije días atrás. Resulta que el Galaxy S5 no ha sido para nada un éxito de ventas, o por…

    Business & IT Strategy We hear it almost every day, IT Strategy, Business Strategy, strategic customer accounts, strategic widgets, etc. Strategy is applied to so many areas and so many things that the word has almost become meaningless.  The term “strategy” has become trite because it is used so much with so little understanding.

    In House vs. Outsource Business today is looking for a way to provide shareholder value.  Outsourcing has become one of the latest “crazes” to boost stock values because shareholders believe it will reduce costs.  While your share price may increase in the short term, you may not see the cost savings and your share price will suffer later as your cost basis increases. It is sad that the cost saving “dream” presented during all those sales pitches often become a “nightmare” of spiraling costs and management headaches.  If you go into your outsourcing…

    Outsourcing Motives One of the hot trends in IT is outsourcing.  The allure of smooth sailing, fewer headaches, and lower cost generally capture senior leadership’s attention.  The sales pitches about all of the success stories are often compelling.  But just like calm (but murky) waters on a mild day hide the rocks under the surface so do many of the outsourcing vendor claims. With some background understanding (and a lot of due diligence) you can avoid most of those rocks and navigate these waters. It does take work, work that your outsourcing vendor will never tell you.

The less aggressive you are with your outsourcing management the more profitable you are to the outsourcing company. Does fallout mean you will be in court? Sometimes yes, but sometimes it means re-negotiating a contract or, worse still, skyrocketing costs which can exceed the original costs that were replaced. Outsourcing Relationship or Arrangement The sales personnel for outsourcing will push the idea of…

There will be a lot of theater, and a lot of opposition as well as support. Some of the opposition comes from workers from coal mining communities or those with power plants fired with coal; their livelihoods are at risk from the changes sweeping the utility industry, including the declining dominance of coal. Others are ideologically motivated, clinging to the view that for society to limit pollution…

    In the tech space, time moves quickly; a little more than seven years ago, smartphones as we know them did not exist — now, they’re the most profitable tech industry on Earth (and so prevalent that it’s actually a problem). A consequence of this is that it’s easy to lose sight of just how revolutionary and important the technologies we use really are. Touchscreens and multitouch interfaces are now a permanent part of the fundamental language of human-computer interaction. All future UIs will carry echoes of touch interfaces with them, in the same way that the keyboard…

    There are a whole host of alternative ROMs just waiting for you to flash them to your Android phone or tablet — so why should you choose OmniROM? Perhaps it’s the philosophy behind the project. Developed by a lot of former CyanogenMod team members, OmniROM was built as a reaction to CyanogenMod “selling out”, as it is now being developed as a commercial enterprise — a decision that has led to a lot of controversy. After all, CyanogenMod was an open source project, one that relied on a community of developers. OmniROM, then, can be considered the spiritual successor…

    Most freelancers and web designers immediately roll their eyes when I say the word, “branding”.

I had this sinking feeling that nobody was going to hire me and I’d quit the whole thing feeling like a failure (and maybe give up on coding for good). And, at first… that’s exactly what happened. The first few freelance jobs I bid on I got undercut by another developer willing to do the work for a price so low it made me question if I’d be able to every make any money as a freelance…

    For a long time, lots of us folks used full disk encryption technology to encrypt our sensitive data from praying eyes and other so-called government agencies. Whenever we talk about full disk encryption or file encryption, most of us remember TrueCrypt for its flexibility and strong encryption methods. All that has changed when the anonymous TrueCrypt team seemingly posted a kind of shutdown message in their Sourceforge website. To confirm the events, they have even updated TrueCrypt to version 7.2 which is solely modified for decrypting the already encrypted files and file systems. i.e,…
  • Change Steam’s Font for Better Readability

    Paul Ferson
    30 Jul 2014 | 7:50 am
    Valve is the dominant name in PC game distribution, and for good reason: no client comes close to Steam’s install-base, and no client offers the same number of games either. Steam’s seasonal sales have become something of legend, offering some of the latest titles at almost absurdly low prices. This does not make it a perfect client though; the UI is frequently critiqued for its ugliness, and it is easy to understand why given the dated design.Given that Steam provides support for skins, it should be hardly surprising to discover that the default UI can be modified quite extensively,…

    31 Jul 2014 | 11:21 pm
    As the new film Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman is set to be released in the cinemas this week, I feel I should attempt to dispel the unfounded premise of the film – that we only use 10% of our brains. Let me state that there is no scientific evidence that supports this statement, it is simply a myth. The concept behind the film is that through the administration of a new cognitive enhancing drug, our female lead character, Lucy, becomes able to harness powerful mental capabilities and enhanced physical abilities. These include telekinesis, mental time travel and being…

It’s the third time this year that the moon and Saturn will perfectly line up, as viewed from our part of the world. This event is known as a lunar occultation of Saturn and this time around occurs with a first quarter moon. It will be possible to watch Saturn disappear behind the dark or unlit area of the moon and reappear, about an hour later, from the moon’s bright side. Those in Tasmania will see Saturn approach very close to the…

Brian Choo, Author providedSpectacular transitional fossils, many from northern China, provide overwhelming evidence that dinosaurs evolved into birds and thus didn’t all perish when the deadly meteorite struck at the end of the Cretaceous period. We now know that many bipedal, meat-eating dinosaurs (theropods) – including relatives of T. rex and Velociraptor – were adorned with a variety of feathers. They were preserved in such detail in fine volcanic ash that often even their colours…

    Mihaita Bamburic
    1 Aug 2014 | 4:42 am
    Despite being called wireless charging, the technology we love today still has a long way to go before it can allow us to top up our devices' batteries at a considerable distance from the charger. But, Wireless Power Consortium signals that the Qi standard may be able to (one day) outgrow this limitation. Right now, devices compatible with the current version (1.1) of the Qi standard can be charged only at a very short distance away from the charger. Based on my experience, you can barely pick up your device without having the connection drop. The new version (1.2) of the standard, however,…

    While it can never be faulted for being slow, Internet Explorer 11 for Windows Phone 8.1 still has some catching up to do with rival browsers from competing platforms, mostly regarding the way it displays some websites. My biggest gripe is that it quite often shows the desktop-optimized versions, when it should load the mobile-friendly versions instead (not the dated ones, mind you, like it does so frequently now). Fortunately, those problems appear to be fixed in the version of Internet Explorer 11 found in Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1. "Based on your feedback, we pursued a web experience for…

  • Active surfaces for Self-Cleaning Solar Panels

    1 Aug 2014 | 4:10 am
    Researchers at MIT and in Saudi Arabia have developed a new way of making surfaces that can actively control how fluids or particles move across them.

    For the past month I’ve been using my shiny new Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11s laptop as my main machine. My initial impression of this laptop is that it is small and understated… In fact you might be tricked into thinking it was a low powered machine based on it’s size when in fact it contains […]

  • Random Things I Learned Building Software

    Joe Kinsella
    28 Jul 2014 | 5:19 am
    I remember the moment I realized I wanted to spend the rest of my career building software. I was at my first job post-college, in my early twenties, and in the office at 9 PM writing code. The company I had joined was on the verge of spiraling out of control, I was working yet another 70+ hour week, and my team was under intense pressure for what seemed like an impossible deadline. But all I could remember thinking is: "I can't believe I'm getting paid to do this job!" In over 20 years, that passion for building software has never left me. I've performed almost every role in a software…

  • AWS Revenue Slip?

    Joe Kinsella
    25 Jul 2014 | 4:46 am
    I recently noticed several bloggers announcing a dramatic slip in the Amazon cloud business based on a drop in revenue of the infamous Other category. While deducing AWS revenue from changes to the Other category is an inexact science, it is the best we have until Amazon choose to break out AWS as a line of business in their SEC filings. It's true the torrid end of 2013 growth of the Other catgeory ($960M in Q3 to $1170M in Q4) flattened in Q1 2014 (+3% to $1204M), before declining in Q2 (-3% to 1168M). But before everyone makes sweeping generalizations of what this means to Amazon's cloud…

    The other night while on the Cape with family, we got to telling travel stories. I've collected a fair number of travel stories over the years - including my recent experience being towed down a busy sidewalk in downtown Seattle. But this is one I had almost forgotten. A few years ago I was traveling to a customer site in Minnesota. My flight arrived late and I dragged myself to the rental car agency hoping to get a car as quickly as possible. But due to the late hour, there was a limited availability of cars, and so the agency decided to upgrade me to a luxury car. I forget the exact model,…
  • The Agility Volume Knob

    Joe Kinsella
    22 Jul 2014 | 6:29 am
    I like to think I’m an Agile Pragmatist in a world of Agile Fundamentalists. I believe there is no single framework / process that is a panacea to the various issues within a software development organization, and instead processes must be adapted to fit the specific needs of a business, its customers, product, team and code base. For me defining the right agile process is like the test an eye doctor gives you (“is this better or worse? is this better or worse?”). Rather than prescriptive adherence to a framework, I like to borrow freely from the rich mulch pile of software development…

    I read about GoTenna yesterday – a neat little device that connects to your phone via bluetooth that allows you to send messages to other people using GoTenna even if cell service is out. It basically turns your phone into a handheld UHF radio with encryption (which you can’t do as a normal citizen with a CB). Watch the video here on the GoTenna site. I noticed the guy smoking (and selling) marijuana yesterday and chuckled. Someone at Hacker News noticed the same thing and commented on it. Another says “I think they are quite deliberately pointing out that dealers can…

In 2012 I wrote about the Creamery in a post talking about the shift in startups from the Palo Alto area to San Francisco, noting that “CrunchFund has probably closed (meaning the verbal agreement part) more deals there than anywhere else.” Other press cemented the cafe’s reputation as the place to do business.
